Tilopa: Karmamudra

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

When serving a karmamudra [spouse], the pure awareness
of bliss and emptiness will arise:
Composed in a blessed union of insight and means,
Slowly send down, retain and draw back up the bodhichitta [the sexual energy],
And conducting it to the source [the divine], saturate the entire body.
But only if lust and attachment are absent will that awareness arise.

Then gaining long-life and eternal youth, waxing like the moon,
Radiant and clear, with the strength of a lion,
You will quickly gain mundane power and supreme enlightenment.

from "The Song of Mahamudra" (Do ha mdzod brgyad ces bya ba Phyag rgya chen po'i man ngag gsal bar ston pa'i gzhung)

Quote of the Moment

"One cannot acheive realization merely by listening to the perfect teachings of Buddha. As a weak person may die of thirst while being carried away by a great river, so the Dharma is ineffective unless meditated upon... Like the physician who possess all the medicine yet dies of internal disease, so the Dharma is ineffective unless meditated upon."

- Gandavyuha-sutra
